The NCAA said Wednesday that it would decide on whether to take action at the "appropriate time" in connection with its inquiry into Penn State and the child sexual abuse scandal that led to the ouster of Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno.
Findings from Penn State's internal investigation into the case of ex-defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky are due to be released at 9 a.m. ET today. The NCAA said it had already been collecting information from the probe led by former FBI director Louis Freeh.
The NCAA said Penn State would have to formally respond to questions from NCAA President Mark Emmert, even after Freeh unveils his findings.
The governing body said it wouldn't interfere with other inquiries and would determine if additional action is necessary. The NCAA, however, offered no specific timeline.
The federal Department of Justice and Department of Education are conducting inquiries.
The NCAA is reviewing how Penn State exerted "institutional control" in relation to the Sandusky matter and whether university officials complied with policies that pertain to honesty and ethical conduct. If the NCAA opens a more formal investigation, it could expose Penn State to sanctions.
Reid arrest: Star Florida State punt returner Greg Reid has been charged with possession of marijuana and driving without a valid license.
Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said Reid was arrested Tuesday in south Georgia near his Valdosta hometown. Reid was also charged with a seat belt violation.
Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday that he was aware of the arrest but didn't have enough information to determine what discipline he might take against the senior.
Reid was suspended for a game last season for a team rules violation and also arrested by Tallahassee authorities on perjury charges that were later dropped. Reid led the nation in punt return average as a freshman and needs 313 yards to break Deion Sanders' school career record of 1,429 yards on punt returns.
